Elizabeth Trinh

Vanier Computer Science Student Chosen as
Montreal Winner of Quebec-wide Competition
HAS CHANCE AT WINNING GRAND PRIZE AS WELL

Chapeau Les Filles ("Hats off to you!") is a Quebec-wide competition for female students who are entering nontraditional occupations. It is organized by the Secteur de la formation professionnelle et technique et de la formation continue of the MEQ and is run through the MEQ's regional offices. Numerous businesses, government departments and unions sponsor this competition as well.

At Vanier, female students in the following four programs are eligible to apply: Computer Science Technology, Computer and Digital Systems, Building Systems, and Industrial Electronics. In this year's competition, nine Vanier students applied; the applicants came from all four of these programs. An internal selection committee at Vanier reviewed the applications and interviewed all candidates, in order to choose two to send onward to the Montreal region level. The two that we selected from Vanier were Elizabeth Trinh (Computer Science Technology) and Rosanna Cerro (Industrial Electronics). Of these, Elizabeth Trinh was chosen by the Chapeau Les Filles jury as a winner for the Montreal region. She is also being considered for the following provincial-level prizes (which will only be awarded in May): "Perseverance", "Cultural Community", "Continuity" and the grand prize ("Grand Prix du Ministre").

We at Vanier wish to add our congratulations for your win. Hat's off to you, indeed, Elizabeth.
